John is not only an amazing attorney but I truly believe he is someone who cares very much about doing his best for his clients. I have used him in several capacities and am continually impressed by the extent of his knowledge. John is an attorney who looks beyond the obvious -he managed to analyze my divorce settlement and find an argument to reopen an issue that no other attorney had managed to see. He has gone through great pains to make sure that I fully understand the basis for his argument and the ways in which he can help me. I am terrible with math but John has taken the time to make me understand the numbers even when, on the 10th time, I tell him that I don't understand it. John is the most responsive attorney I have ever worked with- an email is always answered almost immediately and a phone call always the same day. I first worked with John on my LLC agreement for my new business. He was just supposed to be looking it over on my behalf and was so frustrated by the incompetency of another attorneys drafting that he ended up rewriting most of the document to make sure that I was represented correctly. I would highly recommend john as an attorney of tremendous intelligence and integrity.

I engaged John to oversee a very complex litigation involving a trusteeship for a large family office. He was given the responsibility of managing a team of defense lawyers from three other firms. The task was overly consuming and required a unique and comprehensive skill set. While John's well-known strengths include handling complex transactional matters and trusts and estate planning, John proved his ability to use his strong business acumen, legal knowledge and experience, and his organizational skills in combination to navigate this very challenging matter. He quarterbacked the team, developed the legal strategy and monitored and reviewed each firm's contribution. He was able to keep the team on task and maintain an overall efficiency. Without John as lead counsel, this litigation could have quickly spun out of control and ended with an unfavorable result. I strongly recommend John Corrigan - especially when the going gets tough.

I have known John for many years and most recently used his services to negotiate a labor agreement for me with a new employer. John's knowledge and tenacity secured a lucrative agreement for me; plus many of his negotiated changes became their template for future agreements. John is an advocate and trusted adviser to his clients.

John came highly recommended from another law firm because of his impressive and diverse credentials. John can give you expert advice on most things because he has more certification and degrees than anyone you will ever meet. As a client, I have benefitted from John's extensive experience in law, tax, accounting and financial planning. My family has the utmost confidence in John's advice that we have hired him repeatedly to handle personal estate matters and the formation of LLCs. Just as important...John is down to earth, easy to talk to, and able to explain things in layman's terms. These qualities are very important to my family as small business owners.

AS Business Managers representing High Profile/High Income/High Net Worth Entertainment Industry Clients we have been faced with finding Professionals who can guide us and our clients in Asset Preservation and Tax Minimization. After a very long term client's Estate Planning Needs changed I was challenged by circumstances to select a new Attorney sufficiently informed regarding the modified current Law. I was directed to John, both a CPA and Attorney with an exceptional business and legal background, as well as a great demeanor. He turned a difficult tax situation into a resolution. He is now the person we refer all relevant matters to.

John is extremely knowledgeable, understanding and helpful. I felt a sense of security when negotiating my contracts, knowing he was on my side and looking out for my best interest both now and in the future. He was always available to answer my questions, address my concerns and advise me. His background as a CPA obviated the need to hire an accountant to review my contracts in addition to an attorney. I had a truly wonderful experience and I plan to use him in future negotiations.

I am an M&A banker and have worked with over 100 attorneys throughout my career. In late 2012, a sell-side client of ours engaged John to advise on a transaction (a stock purchase transaction for a $20M middle-market company). John made himself available day and night, even on Thanksgiving day to make sure that we received the advice we needed. He was extremely creative and constantly seeking win-win solutions, while at the same time relentlessly protecting his client's interests. Working with John was truly a breath of fresh air and I recommend him without reservation. He and I will definitely be working together again in the future.

John has been extremely instrumental in helping me launch my software start-up. From the initial LLC formation to our Operating Agreement and Equity Subscription Agreements John has provided expert guidance. On an ongoing basis he has helped to ensure our compliance with our corporate obligations, capital structure and in preparing for an M&A event. He is always a phone call away, is highly responsive and I trust his knowledge and expertise explicitly.

Mr. Corrigan was very knowledgeable and offered excellent suggestions.

John is strategic and critical in his thinking. If you are thinking about a business venture, aquisition, sale of an asset, partnership or even contract type law he is the man for the job. He is very smart, an incredibly good negotiator and will go above and beyond for his long term clients. John is also a CPA and can work through both the legal and tax side of issues for you.

As a former CEO, I have had extensive dealings with dozens of attorneys. John Corrigan is among the very best I have encountered. He had extensive subject matter expertise (John has helped me with contract and employment law). Unlike many attorneys, he also has deep knowledge of accounting financial and tax ramifications. Most importantly after John takes me through all of the possible risks, oportunities and probable outcomes, he counsels me on what the best way to proceed would be so that we get practical and arrive at a decision. John has also demonstrated to me that he is effective in negotiating in a constructive way with attorneys on the other side of the table.

I met John through my partner approximately 4 years ago. He created a business entity plan for our various business and was thorough and insightful with respect to potential issues, future partners and tax specific concerns. Since that time, I referred John to a business associate who started a telecom technology company to create their operating agreement and received nothing but positive feeback.

I have worked with John Corrigan for over 10 years and his skills as a corporate attorney are second to none. John is very well versed in matters of corporate law, debt and equity raises, deal structuring, tax, and business growth strategy. He is extremely responsive to all matters, and is able to deliver results quickly, which is extremely important when you are growing a business. As a CEO, I have general counsel, but John comes in at a higher level, offering specific business advice that helps to get deals closed, while ensuring outstanding protection of my company. I constantly refer John to my clients/colleagues and business partners - which in business, is the best endorsement of someone's talents you can provide. I HIGHLY recommend John Corrigan.

You will love this guy! John is extremely knowledgeable and personable. I feel so relieved to have him on my team. Before I called John, I felt a little lost, but he has moved me along and put my business in a better place. I highly recommend him.

John is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of law and his background as a CPA and CFP has made him an invaluable resource to me across a number of disciplines. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for counsel as it relates to any matters with a financial twist

John is a tremendous corporate lawyer whom I have used for over six years on a wide variety of business agreements.
Most recently, we have been working on a channel partnership contract and John was very instrumental in identifying areas that required clarification, as well as, suggesting alternative options. He took the time to understand the business objectives of the deal and made sure that the agreement was structured to achieve them. John helps us craft a win-win document that was fair and equitable, allowing the deal to be finalized.
I strongly recommend John for any commercial or estate legal advice.

Without John, we would not have been able to successfully take over a majority share in a Shipowner on the Great Lakes in 2009. His innovative approach and persistence helped us to offer the selling, as well as the remaining shareholders an attractive package. At the same time John was extremely instrumental with re-negotiating existing bank loans. His continued advice is very valuable.

As a CPA I was involved with a tax audit that presented some issues between my client and a party that was guaranteeing to pay my fees. Once the two parties became hostile toward one another I needed to withdraw from the engagement without creating any legal exposure for myself based on third party reliance. John crafted an engagement termination letter that addressed the issues dead on and spelled out why I withdrew as well as my concerns for my client with respect to the potential litigation between the two parties.
John is quick to understand issues, cut through the noise and lay out practical solutions that are workable and realistic. Once a course of action is decided, he is quick to turn around supporting documentation.
I would recommend John to anyone needing practical solutions to business issues.
